Nice :biggrin:

What makes some jets do rooster tails and not others? I've seen pics of others like mine and they don't do anything like that. Still, they also don't have gorgeous big V8s in them either!

MikkiJayne,

V8's are scares here by us, it took Steve and I a couple of years to get our boats to look like proper V8 Hotrods. Everything had to be imported from the USA.

I see you live in the UK, why don't you look at the 4.5L VVTI V8 (Lexus) Toyota engine as a power source. They make about 220Kw and makes a bunch of torque.

V8s are just too powerful for my jet. 200hp max :confused-smiley-013
